I first became interested in O.B.E.s at the age of 19 after a near death experience during surgery. I had been writing songs since the age of 5 and somehow found a floodgate of music after this first experience. That's why I named the band O.B.E. I have over 230 songs and more coming all the time. I hope you enjoy them. My band members joined in 1994 when I did a hurricane relief project in Charlotte, N.C. We have played together since then. A combination of North meeting South like Niel Young and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
